The Highway, S.Kjaerbaek

The Highway
By Stephanie Kjaerbaek

Her mind stirred up old routes.

Tall trees embrace clear skies;

While the stars hypnotize.

The dream drowned in a lake.

He told her softly,

“Release me from my pride;

Take me for another ride.”

She held her thumb up,

As she scanned the horizon,

And the abandoned highway.

Free ride doomed him at sunset;

She stood out in morning light

With her dark look and light eyes.
